Has anyone used Coast MBZ BMW Service in Costa Mesa, or Star European Service since Gonzalo sold it (about 2 years ago)? I got great service at Star when Gonzalo ran it, but haven't heard any feedback on the new owner.

Repost from 107 forum...
New owner of a 1984 107, needs some suspension resto, bushings, shocks and perhaps balljoints. Any advise for a shop in the Mission Viejo area?

Gary and his father Bob.

These guys have been in the same building for over 15 Years doing Mercedes Service.

I take both my CL500 and SL55 to them for all of my service. Very satisfied.
Anyone else can vouch for them?

My mechanic sends his cars to him & has been talking about him for years. I haven't actually used his shop myself.

My friend is his computer guy. I have been to his shop and met Gary (owner). I would definitely consider using him. He hasn't worked on my car yet, simply because of location. Maurice's is more convenient for me and he does great work. Johnson's is definitely my next choice.

Thanks for the suggestion. Transmeister took care of a PLIL based leak and tranny service, including draining the torque converter, for me today. A fair price and smooth experience from someone who specializes in German transmissions.

Just transmission work. But he said he has an experienced Mercedes mechanic who rents space from him. I think the guys name is Dan Ashcraft, but I have not tried him yet.
